The poet Anne Waldman has been honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award in this year’s American Book Awards. In addition to her many writings and her work as an social activist, Waldman was a founding member, along with Chögyam Trungpa and Allen Ginsberg, of Naropa Insitute’s (now Naropa University) Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, which opened in 1974.

We at Lion’s Roar offer her our hearty congratulations.
